WHAT YOU NEED TO DO AFTER YOU'VE INSTALLED IT:
Please note that this is a widget and NOT an application, so you will not see it listed on your application list (app drawer).
After you have installed this widget from the Google Play store, you will need to navigate to your widget list in order to place it on your home screen.

This widget will not work on some HTC handsets because HTC have implemented their hotspot API's slightly different to default android.
If you experience problems with this widget on devices not listed above (other than HTC), then please give us a chance to fix the issue by emailing us, instead of giving us a bad review.

v1.6: Removed icon from app launcher
A WIDGET (home long tap->widgets to add, or select widgets from app-list) to enable/disable build-in hot-spot (Wifi tethering) feature on android 2.2+.
Hotspot Control does away with those requirements, assuming that the hotspot functionality itself is actually still present and operational on the device. Rooting is *usually* not required.
THIS IS NOT DESIGNED TO BEAT YOUR CARRIER'S TETHERING PROTECTION - For some people it does (it depends on how that protection is implemented) but this is not what the app was made for. It's no use complaining that it doesn't do this for you. This app is designed to circumvent some issues when setting up a *local* hotspot so your devices can communicate with eachother, *not* with the internet (though that also works on several devices).
You can configure the access point (hotspot) name and password, encryption used is alway WPA2 AES + TKIP, to keep it simple.
On some devices that do not have a cellular data connection capability (like the Nexus 10) the hotspot will not give out IP addresses - the app will auto-detect this situation and fix it, but root is required for that option. Note that without root on these devices, the connected devices can still communicate if you configure their IP addresses manually, but that is something for the advanced user.
I personally need this to create a private network (even without a SIM, and thus without an actual *internet* connection) in the field between a number of my devices. Some genius at Samsung decided that my Note II shouldn't create an access point if no SIM is present - I beg to differ! Maybe someone else has use for this as well.

*** Prerequisite ***
- Nexus One
- Android 2.2 (FroYo)
v1.2: Turns wifi back on when the hotspot is turned off.
This widget was tested on the Nexus One ONLY! Don't expect it to work on other phones.
Use this widget/application at your own risk.
- Automatically switch between different access points based on the signal strength among surrounding Wi-Fi hostpots and previously configured networks. Ideal to prevent unwanted connections to networks that are malfunctioning or whose signal is too weak.
- Automatically authenticate to supported hotspots (if you provide valid credentials).
The application is running in the background and doesn't require any action from the user. It will connect the device automatically to the best Wi-Fi access point.
### Detailed description ###
Only the networks whose signal is greater than a given threshold will be taken into account. An Internet connectivity test is also performed after the connection. If no effective connectivity is detected after a given time, the current network is disabled and the next one is tried. Note that the application doesn't enable/disable the Wi-Fi connectivity of the device but only Wi-Fi networks. Regarding supported hotspots, the authentication is handled in a transparent way if you provide valid credentials.
Here is the detailed algorithm used:
OR Wi-Fi scan done,
OR disconnection from the current network,
OR screen unlocked,
=> Get the list of surrounding Wi-Fi networks
=> Keep only the configured networks or supported hostpots
=> Keep only the networks whose signal is greater than the threshold
=> Sort the networks based on the signal strength
=> Try the first one
=> If it's a hotspot, use the provided credentials
=> Check Internet connectivity
=> If the test is successful, it's done!
=> Otherwise, try the next network, or quit.
The application can try only 2 configured networks and 2 hotspots each time (a total of 4 networks). When the process is finished, the application is suspended for 5 seconds, even if the conditions are met. If no network is successfuly connected after the second try, the delay becomes 10 seconds, then 20, etc. to 5 minutes max. This delay is reset after the first sucessful connection to a Wi-Fi network.

Lieber Telekom Kunde,
HotSpot Login zeigt an, wenn ein Telekom HotSpot verfügbar ist, und hilft Ihnen, sich einfach zu verbinden - ohne jedes Mal Benutzername und Passwort einzugeben. So unterstützt sie auch eine nahtlose Übergabe von 3G zu WLAN, sobald Sie einen Telekom HotSpot betreten.
Sollten Sie sich gerade nicht in der Nähe eines HotSpots befinden, erlaubt Ihnen der integrierte HotSpot Finder die komfortable Suche nach über 11.000 HotSpot Standorten in Deutschland und mehr als 50.000 Standorten weltweit über eine Datenbank im Internet. Der Finder zeigt die HotSpots an Ihrem aktuellen Standort oder bei einer beliebigen Adresse in einer Karte an. Zu jedem HotSpot erhalten Sie mit Tipp auf das HotSpot Icon Zusatzinformationen und können die Route dorthin bestimmen.
Hinweis: An Partner HotSpots im In- und Ausland ist das automatische Login sicherheitshalber deaktiviert. Das Login an diesen Standorten ist mit der App nur manuell möglich und verursacht zusätzliche Kosten. Sollte der Anbieter eine kostenlose Nutzung zur Verfügung stellen (z.B. BTOpenzone HotSpots bei Starbucks), muss die Anmeldung über den Webbrowser erfolgen, um zusätzliche Kosten zu vermeiden. Die App zeigt dann lediglich den aktuellen online Status!
Hinweis: In vielen Telekom Tarifen ist eine HotSpot Flatrate bereits inklusive. Telekom Kunden ohne HotSpot Flatrate können HotSpot Basic nutzen. Mit der Nutzung von HotSpot Basic erfolgt die Abrechnung minutengenau. Für HotSpot Basic fällt kein monatlicher Grundpreis an. Für Kunden ohne Telekom Tarif ermöglicht die App den bequemen Kauf eines HotSpot Pass vor Ort. Weitere Informationen zur Nutzung der HotSpots und den aktuellen HotSpot Tarifen der Deutschen Telekom finden Sie unter www.hotspot.de.
Viel Spaß mit der App,
